Getting closer

I am going on the road for 4 months to work with women in rural areas in Bangladesh and Peru. The idea is to see if information and communication technologies (ICT) can assist these women (and men) towards sustainable development (ICTD) and livelihoods. The UN has a body called the Global Alliance for ICT for Development(UNGAID)and I am a Region Champion. So far my championships has been virtual, consisting of sitting at a desk, so about time I did some hands on, which I am now able to do courtesy of an Australian Goverment Endeavour Award.

I will carry a mini video camera so with a bit of luck and bandwidth I'll be illustrating my journey with pix & vids.

Less than 2 weeks to D-day..getting a teeny bit nervous
